Hi mata7,

There is some info here https://blueirissoftware.com/updates/

The built in BI5 Help file has a section describing updates too. Here's an interesting part:
5.2.2 - March 20, 2020
Video components were updated and the Intel hardware decoding interface was redesigned
and recoded in an attempt to bring some missing features online such as H.265 decoding
and H.264 encoding. The 64-bit version is required for all hardware acceleration. For
backward compatibility concerns for now, you must select “New Intel” as the hardware
decoding method on the Video tab in camera settings.
By the number of new people posting here over the past week, there were clearly a few issues with the recent changes :shock:

Ken tried Intel H265 a year or so ago but it never worked. I guess this is attempt #2.

I found this one to be of interest: Automatic clip storage sub-folder deletion

Does this mean that BI can now prune older files from the directories, preventing out-of-space issues?

I ask because I was just getting ready to write a small powershell script to do this very thing, but if BI will do it then that's one less thing on my list.

Blue iris should keep its files to the space or number of days you have set. However if you store other things on the drive they can cause over allocation issues so its best to have a drive dedicated to Blue Iris and leave at least 10GB unallocated.
